General Motors IT Innovation Center

  • Project Location: Austin, Texas
  • Owner/Client: General Motors
  • Project Description:

This 4-floor new construction in Austin had a tight budget and strict project timeline due to the many phases of the project. HTS was able to assist by providing quiet, reliable air handling units 2VAV systems to dynamically control the space. To accomplish this we used 12 1.5-ton Wall Mounted VRVs, 1 2-ton Wall Mounted VRV, 2 3-ton DC Ducted Concealed VRV, 9 6-ton Ducted Concealed VRV, 5 3-ton Heat Pump Condensing Units, 11 8-ton Heat Pump Condensing Units, 5 FCUs, 2 2.5-ton Cooling Only Sky Air, 3 36,000-CFM Skyline OAU, and 21 Skyline RTUs. With the building phases and large equipment needed, we utilized cranes that were able to drop the equipment directly on the roof.

Retail & Office Key Considerations

Architects and engineers working in the retail and professional office building markets consistently face the same scenario:  the ever-changing need to reconfigure tenant space.  As businesses change, their space requirements can fluctuate wildly.  They move, they expand, they downsize.  And because they do, DXS works alongside architects, engineers and owners to design VRF systems that can be configured – and reconfigured – to meet on-going and changing tenant HVAC requirements.

Key Considerations

  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Designed as a modular system to any specifications required by the project
  • System is easily reconfigured after installation
  • Tight temperature controls of multiple zones for multiple tenants
  • Experienced staff and products that have the ability to interface with a wide variety of control systems
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment locally stocked
